From the beginning of the twentieth century, many forms of pasta have been inspired by mechanics and the automotive industry, such as Radiatori (radiators) or Lancette (clock hands).
Rotelle (cog wheels) are also a result of this tradition and have a round shape with spokes joined to a ridged rim.
Enjoy them served with tomato sauce with or without meat, or alternatively this pasta is perfect in broth and minestrone soups.
Try them when preparing delicious, colourful pasta salads.
De Cecco was founded in 1886 by the De Cecco brothers in the Abruzzo region of Italy. They pioneered a low temperature drying method for pasta which increased the consistency and quality of dry pasta, and are now one of Italy's most popular pasta brands.
